Set in the 1860s at the beginning of reconstruction, the series follows Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier, who is determined to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who murdered his wife. His quest for vengeanace sends him westward to Nebraska's "Hell on Wheels," the lawless town that moves with the construction of the transcontinental railroad. However, things get complicated when a Cheyenne tribe attacks the construction of the railroad, determined to destroy the project because it is being built through their lands.

I am really looking forward to this, I love westerns and I love AMC.
The story will be probably be very dark, since it will take place in Hell on Wheels(the city that moves with the railroad), and it's rumored that somebody died everyday. Union soldiers as well as Confederate soldiers work on the railroad, so there will probably be some conflict over the Civil War, because the construction of the transcontinental railroad did take place a little after the Civil War was over in 1868.
This sounds really promising .
